There have been studies to affirm that racialized trauma changes DNA and this trauma can be memorized between generations. It is an imperative that we begin to dismantle institutional and structural racism. Literally generations need us to be brave and define new liberation models.

Through USI's Education Passport , we bring together school leaders and the families we serve. The program provides encouragement for parents/guardians to participate in a significant number of school-related conversations. While USI sets the table for these conversations, parents create the menu of discussion items with school leaders so that their children will have a successful school experience.
Natasha Harrison

Community engagement must build, share and wield power with the most impacted.
